    no you won't be able to have media run on a 7100g. The hardware can't support that.

    I thought I remember hearing an official statement from someone at rim a while back (when 4.2 and the Sona player were first coming to light) that the 8700 had all sorts of capabilities, they just weren't activated in the software. I could be wrong, I'll try to dig up the thread.

    Meanwhile, it'd be interesting to experiment. Anyone tried to get 4.2 on an 8700? I may give it a go this weekend.

    Re: 4.2 stuff/ Java 2 Questions

    Ben, There is no OS 4.2 available for download yet. But if you find it let us know!

    The first 4.2.x.xxx to be posted will be for the 8100. I doubt that there will be a 8700 compatible version for a while. Maybe up to 90 days, if TMO went with that deep of an exclusivity clause. And I'm really wondering if the 8100 OS can be tweaked enough to run on a landscape screen profile, since it's a Portrait screen Profile base OS.

    Just my $0.02

    I agree with RC.

    Remember: there is no 4.2 OS available.....yet.

    And likely nothing but the 8700 and 7130g/c (not 'e') will get any advantage from running it.

    Until it is about to be released for a device that cingular carries even the data device support reps as Cingular won't be aware of it. Since it is only "Necessary" for the pearl/8100 and Cingular is not getting that until the exclusivity period runs out. I wouldn't expect them to know anything about it unless they read the forums.

    Hope this Helps

    When 4.2 comes out won't it most likely get released in europe since they usually get the new stuff first?

    Pentace, you got the 8100 software running on an 8700? Where did you get the OS to start with?

    It does not seem to do anything special with a Cingular 7130c with 4.1. It gets an internal error on initialization when I try to invoke the Media Manager.

    rgershbock,

    Lewis was talking about when 4.2 OS for the 8700 and 7130c/g. Since 4.1 does not support any media it's not surprising that you get an error when you try to use media manager.

    Be patient and hopefully we well get there.
